Netflix: No plans for games, but 3-D streaming possible

Remember that expansion into the gaming space that Netflix was talking about when it launched its Quickster DVD rental service last summer? Those plans seem to be canned together with the whole Quikster idea, according to statements by the company's CEO Reed Hastings on Wednesday's earnings call. However, the company may have another interesting product in store for its streaming subscribers: 3-D movies. "On streaming, that is definitely something we can do and we will be looking at," Hastings said. The company is already offering 3-D Blu-rays for rent, but hasn't said how well these titles are doing. Subscription plans for physical discs have been declining sharply, and Hastings said during the call that he expects these numbers to decline quarter-over-quarter "forever."
